The Maryland Laser Skin and Vein Institute is one of the first select practices in the United States to offer the innovative picosecond laser device for tattoo removal. PicoSure was approved by the FDA for tattoo removal and treatment of pigmented lesions in 2012, but has only recently become available to patients. The laser removes tattoos with fewer treatments and better results than previously achievable with other lasers.
PicoSure is the world's first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic and tattoo removal laser. This breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second, which is a 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology available in most lasers, enabling unmatched photomechanical impact for better clearance with fewer treatments.
"This new laser promises to reduce tattoo pigment more powerfully with less recovery time and fewer treatments," states Robert A. Weiss MD. "Our initial experience indicates that PicoSure's advanced technology provides us with the most advanced tattoo removal treatment on the market," confirms Margaret A. Weiss, MD.
PicoSure can remove stubborn inks such as dark colors, blues, and greens that are most difficult to treat with other lasers. Using the patented picosecond PressureWave™ technology, PicoSure can remove tattoos with fewer treatments and achieve better results. Additionally, laser tattoo removal treatments with short-burst laser technology require shorter recovery times because less of the skin surrounding the tattoo is damaged during application. "The Picosure technology is a major advance in the science of laser tattoo removal," adds Karen Beasley, MD.
